Bebop time!




I am very proud of Joey and Lissie. They tried out for the Venture theatre play "Bebop with Aesop". It is part of the program, "Venture into the schools". I knew that Joe planned on trying out, but Liss wasn't sure. When it came down to it though, she and her twinner tried out together. As fate would have it, Patrick (the director) had them read lines together. They have always been close and when performing, tend to magnify each other. Joey got the part of the Boy who cried wolf and Lissie is the wolf. She's happy because she is able to speak and dance in it, and Joey is excited because he has quite a few lines. Liss really cracked us all up. She was enthroned on her favorite place (daddy's lap) wrapped in her pink princess blanket, looking very angelic as we discussed how fun this was going to be. Joey explained his role and showed some dance moves. He moves very easily and is enjoying the whole experience. Shon then asked Lissie who she played. She looked up at him with huge blue eyes and dimpled saying, "I'm the wolf. I get to eat Joey's sheep. They are my friends." Just her delivery had us cracking up. We are looking forward to the whole experience. The music is so catchy and fun. The play is well written. I'll post pictures as soon as I have them.

Oh the talent in the Ostler family never ends does it, especially when they have descended from two hams.
